    Hey all:

    Question about the M17x R4 for you folks here. What GPUs can you install (other than the 600 series GeForce cards) in the laptop that do not require HWinfo (or some other program) to run the fans? I've looked into it and it looks like all AMD cards come with a warning that the fans will have to be manually controlled, but as far as Nvidia cards, I can't find that warning anywhere so do more Nvidia cards run fans natively with the M17x R4?

    Ok, so for my M17x R4 if I put a P4000 in it (from what I understand they are cut-down 1070s that run at 100W and outpace 1060s) it would have native control, you think? That's what I am considering, if I can find a functional keyboard.
